Talented villagers entered their baked goods, crafty creations, prized vegetables and impressive blooms into the competition ready to be judged.

The show has been running for 72 years to enable people to showcase their skills.

The event was originally organised by Uphill Horticultural Society, but the group joined forces with Uphill Village Society in 2014 and it now runs across Friday and Saturday.

Westhaven and Uphill schools entered displays for the event and items from the village archive and exhibition pieces were also on display in the Victory Hall.
